Mrs. Laura Neff
Hi, I am Laura Neff, the librarian at Ball High School, where I have the privilege of serving all our students and all our faculty. Since 1999, I have served as librarian at a variety of schools, ranging from small rural elementary schools to large city middle schools and now at Galveston Ball, and one thing I have learned is that kids are kids, no matter where they live or what their age. I believe that as librarian of Ball High Library my mission is to help students be the best students they can be and to help teachers be the best teachers they can be. I am here to provide reading materials, resources, computer help, encouragement, and support in whatever way I can. My husband Jerry and I have 3 grown sons and a wonderful daughter-in-law, and one of our greatest joys is spending time with them. Many of our activities are centered around Moody Methodist Church, where my husband is the senior pastor. In addition, we love to travel and cruise with friends and family, but when not exploring new places, we enjoy being outside at the pool or on the beach here on beautiful Galveston Island. I graduated from LSU with a degree in journalism, and then pursued my Masters in Library Science at SHSU once my boys were all school age. I love being a librarian and believe that it is the best job on any campus, as it gives me the opportunity to indulge my passions—reading, teaching, learning and serving.
